Facing Ted Williams

  • The Splendid Splinter, Teddy Ballgame, The Kid?no matter the nickname, Ted Williams was one of the most accomplished hitters in baseball history. He was the last man to hit .400 in a single season, a 19 time All-Star, two-time MVP and Triple Crown award winner, and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 . . . all while serving his country in World War II and the Korean War.

    Far from a conventional biography, Facing Ted Williams aims to offer a different perspective?to tell a different story. See Ted Williams through the eyes of pitchers struggling to put a fastball past his bat, from infielders and outfielders, as they adjust their positions in the hopes that they can fill the hole where a frozen rope might otherwise land, squat behind the plate with catchers as they strategize a Williams at-bat, pitch-by-pitch, as well as testimonials from teammates and opponents alike on how Williams was regarded among his peers. Facing Ted Williams provides riveting insights from many baseball legends, including:

    • Don Larsen
    • Bob Feller
    • Roy Sievers
    • Bobby Richardson
    • Mudcat Grant
    • Bob Friend
    • And many more!
    Whether you?re a Red Sox fanatic, a casual baseball fan, or perhaps just an admirer of the fabled war hero and slugger, this book is sure to be a fresh and compelling look at this classic baseball icon. Much like Williams himself, Facing Ted Williams is sure to be a homerun for all walks of baseball fandom, so don?t swing and miss!
